    look at the geographical locales
    high seismic activity, rift zones, seafood diets etc

    they blew it with the okinawans, as most do...
    its all down to pork, time in the water etc etc as we know, and geographical location...

    LOL! Having lived in Oki. It always frustrates me to see how wrong they get it. The older generation (the pre-WWII group, and the post WWII group) cling heartly to the old ways. The younger generation, has been influenced by Mainland Japan. The arise of fast food is the result of the US Military (comforts of home)

    But bento shops are found on every corner and in every connivence store. Rice is a side dish, not the primary source of food. long slow cooking is used, as is plenty of raw foods. meals are small and shared among the family. Awamore is consumed regularly (I do miss awamore) Deserts are limited to Onigiri (riced wrapped in seaweed) stuffed w/Ume (plum). Onigiri can also be a quick meal when stuffed w/raw fish!

    While pork was offered on many a menu - all the Okinawans I ate with usually preferred fish, but they would eat it for special occasions... I ate sashimi at least 5x/week. There were "secret" restaurants - that Americans we're allowed to go to unless invited by an Okinawan - they served traditional foods, prepared in the old ways. that was some of the best food I've ever eaten...
    caroline and Tanya like this.
